Cheap room in a cheap hotel. You could probably find better but the room was clean

Haha... I haven't seen such a dump in Paris since the early eighties. Worn down both on the inside and outside. The building is falling apart and a net on the top floor is put up to prevent pieces of the facade to fall onto the street.
But, most important: a travel companion woke up one morning with red nasty insect bites all over her arms and neck. 30-40 of them, maybe more. Fleas. Yeah that's right: fleas!
The lady in the reception didn't seem all that surprised... She immediately helped to change to another room though. What became of the flea-room? Don't know, maybe it was given to new arrivals.

This place has three stars. This is nothing short of a miracle. One star would barely be proper. A three star hotel in Paris is nowadays quite good - ANY other three-star Parisian hotel is lightyears ahead of this one in standard.
Besides the fleas, the breakfast is more than basic and the rooms are very noisy, most of them facing the street. And the street is Rue La Fayette - a busy one...
To say something positive: the staff is quite friendly and nice.

Never, ever put your money in this establishment. Period.

Hotel booked because of photographs which showed a lovely hotel. On arrival found a dingy facade and grubby entrance. On entering we were told that a "contaminated disease" had been found within and that we could no longer stay there. We were found another hotel nearby which for the same money we found to be clean, tidy and well cared for with pleasant, helpful staff.

There are many hotels in Paris in the same price range and if possible I would try to book someplace else. This hotel is currently going through significant renovations and it shows in the room quality. First of all, I will say that our room was quite spacious (triple). However, the sheets had tears in them, bedspreads were stained as were the pillows. The bathroom was okay, clean/updated. The heat did not work the two days we were there and the front desk seemed uninterested in helping us. Location is okay, but pretty much everywhere in Paris is convenient to something thanks to the Metro.

  • Liked — Price was good for a triple-breakfast was good
  • Disliked — Dirty carpet, bed linens, stained bedspreads, no working heat

This hotel has a 3 stars, but I wouldn't give it even one. For 90 euros that was very bad. Room was dirty, staff not helpful at all. I walked in the room and went to look for another hotel and I found, just across the street, a 3 star hotel that had the same price as this one, but compared to this one that was a 10 star hotel. They did renovate some rooms but it would be fair if they out on internet the other rooms that are dirty, old, and nothing works. I haven't spend one night there because I couldn't. xxxxx Very, very dissapointed.

I was stayed there 3 nights. 3 terrible nights. At the door there were a "3 star" sign given by French tourism authority. May be they were drunk while giving out the stars. There were limited hot water every day, rooms were very dirty. Beds, linens, everything was dirty in the room. There was a tv but no remote control only local French channels. Just a desk and a chair. Bathroom was small and old fashioned. Breakfast was only consisting of croissant and coffe or tea both were terrible. During our second day we saw the kitchen accidentally and quit having our breakfast there. Kitchen probably last renewed just after WW2. So, yes location is very good. Yes neighbourhood is not bad. But these are not enough reasons to sleep within those dirts. This hotel was terrible.

  • Liked — hotel was next to metro station so easy to runaway..
  • Disliked — cleanless level of the hotel. too dirty..
  • Tips/Secrets — try to select corner rooms 101, 201, 301.. they are relatively bigger than the others.

i have an only one good impression for this hotel; that is location. This hotel location is very closer to the opera building, concorde square, louvre museum, champs elyees avenue and other well known locations. You can reach those locations by walking in a 10min. by the way infront of hotel there is a supermarket, mc donalds and metro station (le peletier). Paris metro is very good organized metro u can go where u want by using metro. The metro is like london, new york or moscow metro but level of security is better(except st dennie region). My room was at the 1st floor and under my room there was a armenian restaurant. It was smelling very bad n every night i was listening stupid traditional armenian songs up to 02:00. Moreover metro is passing under the hotel bcs of this hotel is vibrating when trains are passing. Breakfast is poor bcs they are giving u only the french break fast. Rooms are clean but very very older by the way hotel is older. Hotel has no air conditioning system, i dont wanna imagine summer time.

  • Liked — perfect location

  • Tips/Secrets — perfect location, metro station, supermarket and mc donalds infront of hotel
